Because I have nothing clever to say...

And because Alli tagged me:

What was your first impression of your spouse? I thought he was good-looking, but a little disappointed that he was a Utah-boy.
If you were an animal what would you be? I am an animal. I am a person. I breathe and eat food. Also, I have five senses. Yes, I am an animal.
